  1. And people still don’t want us calling it The Wuhan Virus?

    Pathetic.

  2. Before y’all come flooding in with the “If only we knew earlier” bullshit:

    > “We’re talking about a much smaller range of deaths than from the flu. It’s very mild.” – interview on Hannity, March 2nd

    That’s the POTUS, downplaying the virus on TV, right up to the start of Spring Break

    This was Florida 3 days ago, a state with a population of 21% seniors.

  3. >US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday demanded that China share more data on the novel coronavirus as Beijing angrily accused him of lying and said Washington was trying to shift blame.
    >
    >It was the latest clash in an escalating feud between the two powers over the global COVID-19 pandemic, which was first detected in the Chinese metropolis Wuhan but has now infected more than 250,000 people worldwide and hobbled life in the West.

  4. I think china has done very well and has been informing the scientific community in an exemplary way. They copped flak when they locked down Wuhan and 15million people and it was said it was heavy handed. They absolutely stopped transport and travel and it worked. Meanwhile the rest of the world waited and fox n friends said it was a Democratic party plot… for goodness sakes guys to blame China for not acting fast enough… and to call it the Chinese virus just to take attention away from appalling handling of this. Take a good look at yourselves before you blame others and then continue to act like fools instead of asking for help when you need it. Pride goes before fall and this is pride and stupidity.

  5. So, the Trump administration is Witch Hunting now?

    You hate to see it..
